You don't have to be a genius to see what's that going to do with the player's field....

Another European Indoor tournament ruined...
Very bad move...

If the WTA is making a move against tournaments that stand alone in the calendar and lead to nothing, then they should do the same to Charleston.



Maybe there are some grasscourts left at a club used by the British Army back in the day. I know they have them in Pakistan, for instance.

Anyway, I suppose this will be an all-new venue at some brand new resort trying to promote itself internationally, and they can afford to set up whatever playing surface they wish. Biggest problem will be the heat, as we've discussed before.
they are trying, putting monterry the same week as it next year, the 11-40 ranked girls would all surely rather stick with hardcourts straight after miami. plus monterry has always been able to pull a top 10 player as well so we might see an aga, petko ect there if the price is right next year.

p.s i agree this is the killing off of paris indoors RIP

Re: NEW SEWTA 2013 Calendar - Memphis Cancel, 4 New MM Including Cairo, Rio De Janeir

I dont think it's Hong Kong either... No body cares about tennis here, they just watch Premier League... And the crowd will be even worse if the field is shit...
I think the exho here cancelled is because the lack so sponsor and too costly...
Also, putting Hong Kong here is not appropriate because it's gonna be cold at the beginning of the year and Australia is soooo hot that time...

But I would definitely hope that's the case and so gonna to watch no matter how the field is...

I don't think it will be Hong Kong as well. Cannot imagine how empty CC will be if the play starts at noon

Do the top-seeded players receive BYEs at the Paris Indoors? If that's the case, it might not be too bad as it means they won't have to play until Thursday. Even so, the tournament still deserves much better.

Very good plan this time! Nice to see Paris/Pattaya right after AO with FC heading after and then Doha/Dubai.
